About Steer-by-Wire (SbW) with Stowable Steering Column

Nexteer's SbW replaces the mechanical connection between the handwheel and 
roadwheels with algorithms, electronics and actuators. SbW opens the gateway to 
benefits that are not achievable with traditional steering solutions. SbW can 
enhance stability control, reduce braking distances, and is a preferred enabler 
for Park Assist and Automatic Emergency Steering (AES).

When paired together, Nexteer's SbW with Stowable Steering Column opens a new 
world of cockpit design options and changes how drivers can use their vehicles 
– creating the opportunity for OEMs to re-invent and re-purpose the driver's 
cabin space. For example, when SbW is coupled with Stowable Steering Column 
during automated driving, additional space is created for the driver to engage 
with other activities. This technology can also be used for traditional driving 
vehicles. When the vehicle is in park, Nexteer's Stowable Steering Column can 
extend the usable space in the vehicle cabin, creating a more spacious 

Nexteer's SbW with Stowable Steering Column has also been recognized as a 2021
